No, you just have to calculate the data for yourself. Assuming you use the stock Rasa kit fans at 100% speed:

RX240: 350W at 10C Delta
RS240: 300W at 10C Delta

Now, and i7 with EXTREME (1.45V+) it will consume up to 200W at full load.

200/350 = 0.57*10C = 5.7C Delta
200/300 = 0.67*10C = 6.7C Delta

So at 100% load with EXTREME overclocking and 1700 RPM fans the difference will be around 1C. With slower fans the difference would be a bit larger, but also keep in mind at 4 GHz you are looking at power consumption more around 130-140W at load.

Stick with the RS.
